Does room have to be dated and quiet for you to sleep? Can you sleep well in a room that gets light and is not so quiet?
That is great, I envy those that can sleep anywhere and anytime in any condition. 👍I can sleep anywhere, anytime. Often, it is not my intention to go to sleep, but I do anyway. No, I do not have a diagnosed sleep disorder. I was told by a specialist that I do not fit the profile, so I chose not to pay for testing.
Darkness (or the lack of) doesn't bother me - I can sleep anywhere and any time (on a bus, a train, a plane), but I do prefer peace and quiet, for noise does bother me.Does room have to be dated and quiet for you to sleep? Can you sleep well in a room that gets light and is not so quiet?
I'm a nut for non-direct lighting, warm, "clean" lighting. Most home overhead, bright, white, stark lights make me a little crazy - I'd rather sit in the dark and get eye strain than deal with itHowever, I don't like overhead lighting, even when awake; I tend to prefer task or ambient lighting, and, while I can fall asleep in my bedroom with the reading light on - which doesn't bother me - I prefer darkness, and would not sleep comfortably or easily if the overhead light was still on.
I am the inverse. A nuclear bomb could go off and I'd never notice, but crack a light and I have problems. I seek complete darkness if at all possible.Light doesn’t bother me when I’m sleeping, however noise does.

He was a genius.That was almost Seuss-ian ...
In the dark I can sleep,
I'll lay slumbering, without a peep.
If it's bright, I can also snooze,
Not a bit of sleep, will I lose.
Fabulous quote, and thanks for sharing.He was a genius.
“Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So, love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.”
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”
“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
(Theodor Seuss Geisel)
You are welcome.Fabulous quote, and thanks for sharing.
Actually, I really loved the books of Dr Suess when I was a kid.
So positive, so imaginative, so funny, and so wonderfully life-affirming.
I have an enormous tolerance for heat and warmth.Light doesn't bother me. Noise can depending on what kind of noise it is. Your body will be more relaxed if it's cooler rather than warm.
No, but it certainly helps.Does room have to be dark for you to sleep?
Eating in bed? The only place more forbidden to eat than bed is the restroom. 🙅🏼♂️I am the inverse. A nuclear bomb could go off and I'd never notice, but crack a light and I have problems. I seek complete darkness if at all possible.
It's been an adjustment with my wife over the years because she's the same this way as you are. I have to be careful when eating in bed while reading on my iPad because any loud crunching wakes her up.
